My new variation of slow stick "Spy in the Sky" finished and flying!

I started this project some time back and it is finished and flying well! All I need is some calm weather. Every time this thing has been taken out to a field the winds have been in excess of 20mph including it's maiden flight in Bremen Indiana. Here are some pics of it along with a couple videos.

Specs:
78" wingspan
two Venom 1925KV outrunner motors spinning Graupner 4 blade propellers
two Eflite 25A esc's
Batteries are 3S 2200's run in parallel
8 servos run the pan and tilt and controls.
Wing has flaps and ailerons
Landing gear is Millenium carbon mains and a twin wheel nose gear strut made by me
HD video is a Creative Vado Generation 2

Has a very unique sound in the air and flies SUPER!

The Spy in the Sky went down yesterday. I think my battery may have unplugged. I had a go pro rolling and the go pro survived. Unfortunately the Spy in the Sky did not. Spy in the Sky II coming soon!!!
